SOURCE: ABS LIGHT STAYING ON
If the light is on it means the ABS computer has detected a fault and it is disabled at present. You can try removing the negative battery terminal for 10 minutes then put it back on. Let the car idle for another 10 minutes and go for a drive . Try a couple of hard braking till the wheels lock. See what happens with the light. If it stays on then you'll have to get the computer scanned at the dealer's.
Let me know how you get on.

had a simmilar problem with my volvo 850 an engineer ? RAC told me my valves had bent as it was turning over but had no compression ?. I spent £400 having the head done replaced it and after 6 moths same again. Came out one morning not starting turning over but dead not a glimmer .
Then an old guy who was passing said try changing your oil grade ? and squirta a litlle into your cylinders .
I thought well anything is worth a try so I did an oil change and sqiurted some into each cylinder left it ten minutes like he said .
Came back out and with fingers crossed turned the key and she burst into life on the first tunn , seems it's a common fault with the 850 the oil thins drains out of the head and it looses compression , what I want to know where was that old guy the first time around he could have saved me £400 ....Vortash

it is probally due to an evap -code and never refuel with engine running go to a parts store and get the code and erase code and go to have car inspected right away and put a bottle of emission reducer in tank WITH 1/8 OF FUEL and then put it on machine and you should be ok
